Me struggling up Mont Ventoux for the first time! Done it 3 times since (each way up) without stopping. This seems like a lifetime ago! http://img208.imageshack.us/i/snapshot2 ... 45552.tif/

    I was playng with one of these last week as i was keen on this as my next bike. Until i saw it. The head tube is so long? How anyone can get the bars low enough on these is beyond me. On my addict i run the stem as low as it will go on quite a short head tube. This bike is so long in the head tube in real life i dont know how anyone gets it to fit? Lovely looking thing but the dimensions seem so off (for me anyway)

    Cracking bike hope you enjoy it.

    I've often thought the same about the S5, the fork shape does not reflect the overall look/shape of the frame

    Great looking bike though and nice to see somebody has the conviction to show the rider...enjoy your bike :D

  • Sorry but it's clearly a hideous bike.

    I think there's way too much criticism.

    I'm so impressed, I've used this photo as my screensaver on my laptop.

    And I've not even cropped it. :shock:

    Good effort but it looks awkward. Like a cervelo croix de fer tourer.
  • My eyes! My eyes!!!

    It's terrible.

  • are those 650c wheels?
  • Paul 8vPaul 8v Posts: 5,458
    I think it looks a little strange because of where the fork crown sits. However. These go like [email protected]£t off a shovel and that is the most important thing surely?

    From an aesthetic point of view I think they do need deep section wheels though:

    Although it adds to what is already a bloody dear bit of kit for most people.

    All aero frames look much better with aero wheels but the S5 is screaming out for them. Get some 80mm's on it!
